at the halo effect that microsoft can have. already supporting microsoft environment. but there's a lot of challenges. and we're not hiding those. the price point and the usability i think is still an issue with the content that's available. >> right. jon fortt, microsoft was slow out of the gate here. is this going to be the device that makes them catch out? >> doubtful. three things. first, the original surface came out at 500 bucks. doesn't seem to have blown the door off. this is 900 to 1,000 bucks. and it's selling in february. this isn't even a holiday season. it'd be surprising to see great deals of that device even though this does run legacy windows apps. you know what runs legacy windows apps? pcs. they're not selling well either. that's why intel is working hard to get the touch screens down to the $600 range. it would run counter for this to be doing that well. we'll see when they show us some numbers. >> jon, do you think the 128 gig ipad will take a bite out of this surface interest? i mean, slap on a $75 keyboard, you're back to a macbook. >> i think that's really at the

, i think these underlying messages about the political environment in spain, notwithstanding kelly's point about what is the alternative here. the fact that there's political instability means as an investment area it's not sit back and say thank you very much and everything's all right again. those issues are still this. the move we've seen in the last, you know, four, five months has been about this extreme risk gap closing. there's very little out there in the spanish market which doesn't have an alignment roughly with where value is now. it's not a market trading at a big discount to its value. the risk moves to almost zero. we know low volatility's out there for a lot of markets. as the risk apps widen again, places like spain and italy will be in the forefront of that profit-taking and price gapping again. that's the risk you face. these are much higher beater areas of your investment portfolio. and if it requires there to be a consistent stable political environment, neither spain nor italy will be delivering that sufficiently for you not to think about readjusting exposure

to be overweight in this environment. >> russ, the great andy surer from "fortune" magazine is here. >> hey, andy. a lot of people are felg like they've missed the rally in stocks, but you don't want to staying in bonds. they're caught between a rock and a hard place. unintended with you guys, i guess. sorry about that. what's your advice to them? >> there's a couple of things. when i think about this, i want to do it for my portfolio construction base. it's not stocks or bonds. people are going to earn both in their portfolio. right now, we would be overweighting stocks with their valuations. the key is to look for those areas where you're getting real or after inflation returns while minimizing the risks. that suggests taking down your treasury allocation significantly. looking at credit, looking at structured bank loans, looking at municipals that have been in high yields. not because these areas look particularly cheap, but on a relative basis, they offer much better yield with less risk in my opinion. >> okay. russ, we're going to leave tlit. we appreciate your perspective. we're going to he

costs, very important in a rising salary environment. how much leverage there is, meaning, if you have all of the laboring costs accounted for, how much business can you do? all right, the one i like to think of, it's not a lemonade stand, chipotle. they have labor and they have food and customers. the more customers they can serve per hour, the more leverage they have. the keys to the gross margin at chipotle are the cost of the beef, chicken, tortillas, the cost of the labor and most importantly the number of customers they can push through in a given day. of course there are dozens of other inputs advertised in leases in the stores need to have as little turnover as possible because the cost of training new employees is tremendous. it's a huge obstacle to making a lot of money. th that's the former ceo of costco made clear to us. legendary for paying his employees the most and treating them with the best of benefits because it's so important to keep them happy. so the firm doesn't constantly have to train new people. new people are not known to the regular customers who like to see
